Keywords  -  The Importance Of Tagging

Every internet marketer knows that one of the most, if not THE most, important keys to success online is getting and increasing website traffic.

The more visits your website gets, the more sales you should make and the better your profits will be.

Now, if you're an internet marketer you should already have a niche. On top of that, you should have a handle on the important keywords for your niche and constantly be conducting research for new and popular keywords.

But, after all that hard work, are you making the mistake that many beginning internet marketers make?

Are you forgetting to actually tag your keywords?

After all, what good comes from spending your valuable time optimizing your site's content with relevant keywords and then not tagging them?

Tags are the breadcrumbs that search engines are looking for. Tags tell search engines what your site and pages are all about.

No tags? Well then, your won't be getting ranked highly by the search engines.

How To Use Tags On Your Site

Title Tags

In my opinion, title tags are absolutely the most important pieces of tag real estate! Here's what a title tag looks like:

< title>Important Keyword Phrase< /title>

Title tags are where you should place your most important keyword or keyword phrase. This phrase should describe your business and be 90 characters or less in length.

Header Tags

Next in order of importance to search engines are the header tags. A header tag would look like this:

< h1>Secondary Keywords< /h1>

The designation of "1" shows this header as the most important header on this page. You can use additional header tags if you wish. For example, < h2> would be second most important, < h3> the third most important, and so on.

Meta Tags

Meta tags are the relatively small and descriptive keyword-rich text found underneath the title tag on search engine results pages.

Just like title tags, meta tags should be brief - 90 characters or so in length.

Alt Tags

Alt tags are a little different than the tags described above. These tags provide a text description of any graphic you use.

Always make sure that every graphic on your site has both a description and an alt tag. Remember, search engines can't see your graphic, they only know what the image stands for if you include an Alt Tag!

How Many Keyword Tags Should You Use?

Current thought on this is that, to obtain the best results, you should limit your keyword tags to somewhere between ten and fifteen words per page of content. You should always have at least one keyword for every post or page, or else what's the point in creating that content?

It's find to repeat two or three of your impost important keywords or keyword phrases once, but if you repeat them more often then the search engines - at best - are more than likely to ignore the duplicates, and - at worst - possibly not rank your page at all, as it will look spammy to the spiders.
